Meet sweet Lacey, a once-stray and ever-deserving female Pyr who is bound to capture your heart with her enduring spirit. This gentle girl has likely never known love or human affection, but still retains a pleasant demeanor around all people. At 6 years young, she was found covered in mats and ticks with worn down teeth and an injured tail, evidence that life before rescue was far from rosy and likely involved neglect. Due to her small teeth, Lacey sticks her tongue out; she does drool a bit, and often drops her food while eating. She needs a forever family who finds beauty in the flaws and is patient with her harmless quirks and fears. Lacey needs to be placed as the only dog, or with a non-alpha large male (she does not get along with smaller dogs). This darling is looking for a quiet and loving home where she can wander a bit (in a well-fenced yard, of course) and find some peace, quiet, and love. The look in her soulful eyes says it all - will you be the one to provide Lacey sanctuary?
NGPR does not adopt dogs to homes with children under 6 years old.

About Us: National Great Pyrenees Rescue (NGPR) is not a shelter. We are a not-for-profit, tax-exempt coalition of Pyr rescuers and rescue groups. We save Pyrs and Pyr mixes across the country and place them in approved foster homes so we know how they will interact with your family. Please consider adopting or fostering. Every dog who is fostered or adopted makes room for another Pyr coming out of a kill shelter. Prior to adoption, NGPR dogs are fostered for a minimum of two weeks (usually more), spayed or neutered and fully vetted. Dogs coming from out of area are certified with a USDA health certificate before going to their new homes. Our rescuers adhere to the highest placement standards and will take back any dog whose adoption does not succeed. Visit www.nationalpyr.org to learn more about us, our mission and our breed.
